Apr 10, 2014Update: Sort Individual Lists Uniquely

Today we are releasing a small setting that should make some people very happy. It is now possible to save the sort criteria for individual lists instead of individual views. For example, you can now have each saved search sorted by it's own criteria instead of having all saved searches use the global sort setting.

To enable, go into your account settings and choose the "Behavior Preferences" option. Under this you'll want to enable "Save sort preferences on a per-list basis" and then press "Save".

Once you do this, you will be able to sort each list and Toodledo will remember the settings individually. If you prefer the current default behavior where each view (Main, Folder, Search, etc) has it's own global sort setting, then you don't need to do anything.
Mar 4, 2014Work Hours Tool does more holidays

Toodledo has a tool that will show you the number of hours you have left to work this year, month, week and day. Today we have updated it to include international holidays, so if you are using Toodledo from outside the USA, you can now get more accurate results.

Feb 28, 2014Translating Toodledo into other languages

Our iOS app and Mobile Website have already been translated into 8 different languages and counting. Today we have begun to translate our main website into other languages as well. The first step is a Spanish translation for the Outlines section. You can set your preferred language in your account settings. Over the coming months we will be adding more languages and translating other parts of our website.

You can help! If you are bilingual, please visit our Translation page and give us a hand: http://www.toodledo.com/translate/index.php
Feb 11, 2014Android App Crowdfunding Project

Dear Toodledo Users,

An official Android app for Toodledo has been at the top of our to-do list for a long time. You may be aware that we recently acquired an existing Android App, which is going to provide the foundation for building an awesome Toodledo experience on Android in the future.

Now we need your help. Toodledo is a small company with limited resources, so we have started a Backer Campaign to help raise money to support the future improvement of the Android App. Given the chance, we will hire an Android developer to take over the project and add all of the functionality that you expect from Toodledo.

If you are an Android user and want the best experience from Toodledo, please check out our crowdfunding campaign. We have some nice rewards to share with you for making a pledge. Please help us spread the word and meet our goals.

Jan 30, 2014Bitcoin as payment option

Toodledo now accepts Bitcoin as a payment option when purchasing or renewing your Subscription. This makes Toodledo the first productivity tool (that we know of) to accept Bitcoin.
Jan 27, 2014Toodledo Android App

One of our most frequent requests is for an official Android app for Toodledo. We are definitely late to the party and have struggled with this for some time.

The solution that we had been working on was to leverage our web expertise to develop an excellent mobile website that works offline in any web browser. We were then going to put this inside of a native Android app, making what's called a hybrid app. We were progressing on this path.

Then we became aware of an excellent native Android app named "MyToodle", developed by Phuah Yee Keat in his spare time. We started a conversation with him and worked out an agreement in which Toodledo will be acquiring and taking over full-time development of the project. He will remain on for a short time to help us transition the app. Meanwhile we will be redoubling our efforts to hire an Android developer to take over the project full time.

We have big plans for this app! Over the next months we'll be rebranding it and improving it's integration with Toodledo. Then we'll continue to add features to eventually bring it in parity with our iOS app. We encourage you to check out the app here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/developer?id=Toodledo

Please send us feedback and feature requests through these forums or our support tickets.

And a special thanks to Phuah Yee Keat for his excellent work over the last year to make this possible.

Dec 24, 2013Toodledo 2013 - The Year in Review

Happy Holidays from Toodledo!

2013 was an exciting year for Toodledo. We started the year as one of the most popular online to-do lists and we expanded our services to provide a more complete set of productivity tools to our customers, and in the process turned Toodledo into one of the top overall productivity tools available.

Here is a list of the amazing things that we accomplished this year:

Reliability
We were able to maintain an uptime record of 99.999% for the year, with only 5 minutes of unscheduled downtime. See Pingdom for more info.

Outlines (link)
We added an entire new section to Toodledo called Outlines. An Outline is a place for you to organize projects, take notes and store other hierarchical information. You can use an Outline to brainstorm, organize your homework, plan a business report, or break a project down into smaller pieces. It supports unlimited levels of hierarchy, so you can use an Outline to break projects down into subtasks and sub-subtasks and sub-sub-subtasks if you want. You can attach Outlines to any task and soon, you'll be able to access these Outlines in our iOS app.

Lists (link)
Another entirely new section for Toodledo called Lists. This new section is a place for you to make customizable lists for specific purposes. Use it like a spreadsheet or use it to create packing lists, dieting logs, or an address book. Make a list to remember your favorite restaurants, or keep an inventory of your coin collection. For each list, you can customize the number and type of columns, with more than 20 different column types to choose from: text, number, date, rating, price, etc. You can attach Lists to any task and it will also be coming soon to our iOS app.

Tasks
1) File attachments saw a significant upgrade with the ability to upload files from your desktop as well as Dropbox, Facebook, Google Drive, Gmail and more. In addition to files, you can now attach Notes, Outlines, and Lists to any task for quick reference.

2) IFTTT - If you are not familiar with IFTTT, it lets you create powerful connections between services with one simple statement: "if this then that". With the Toodledo Channel at IFTTT, you can automate and integrate Toodledo into many different 3rd party services.

3) We created the Work Hours Left tool. This tool will show you the number of work hours left in the day, week, month and year so that you can see how much time you have left to be productive. It is customizable for your work schedule.

4) We added the ability to undelete tasks that were accidentally deleted.

5) We enhanced alarms with a more intuitive interface and with the ability to get alarms in your web browser and via a webhook.

6) We added a setting to automatically unstar a task when you complete it, which can be useful for people who use the star to mark tasks that they want to work on today.

7) Toodledo now has a Mac application that will provide quick access to your to-do list from your Mac's menu bar.

8) We created a number of tutorial videos to help you learn how to use Toodledo's advanced features.

9) We redesigned our subscription page and now support direct credit card payments in addition to PayPal, and we added a Platinum subscription level with increased storage and enhanced support.

iOS app (link)
1) We completed the redesign of our iOS app to improve the look and feel and improve usability. There are too many things in the redesign to mention here, please read the complete announcement for details.

2) Building on the redesign from the beginning of the year, we transformed it again for the iOS 7 release towards the end of the year. Toodledo is now an iOS7 optimized app.

2) We added "Saved Search" to the iOS app so you can now view all of your custom task lists. This was one of our top requests for the app, so we are happy that we were able to deliver.

3) We added Facebook integration so you can share any task on Facebook to let your friends know what you are doing.

4) We added the ability to duplicate Notes.

Overall
In addition to above, we fixed a number of bugs and smaller improvements across all of our products.

We appreciate all the support and suggestions that we have received from everyone. We are continuing to make Toodledo the best productivity tool on the internet, and we have big plans for 2014 and beyond. Thanks to everyone for making Toodledo a success.

Happy New Year!

Dec 19, 2013Toodledo Channel for IFTTT

Today we are announcing a Toodledo Channel for IFTTT.com.

If you are not familiar with IFTTT, it lets you create powerful connections between services with one simple statement: "if this then that". With the Toodledo Channel at IFTTT, you can automate and integrate Toodledo into many different 3rd party services.

For example, you can create a Recipe to automatically add a task to your to-do list to bring an umbrella to work if it is going to rain tomorrow. Or, you can create a Recipe to automatically email you a copy of each task that you complete.

There are over 70 different Channels at IFTTT that you can integrate and automate with Toodledo. Put the internet to work for you!

Dec 2, 2013Do.com Importer

Since Do.com is shutting their doors, we have built a way to quickly import your data from Do.com into Toodledo.com so you can keep working on your to-do list without any downtime.

Just export your data from Do.com following their directions and then import the resulting .json file using the importer in our Tools section. Here is the direct link:
http://www.toodledo.com/tools/connect_json.php

Please share with your friends or colleagues who may be using Do.com.

Use promocode "blackfriday" to get 20% off a Toodledo subscription. Share this code with your friends using our Referral program and get yourself a free 3 month extension to your subscription as well!
Oct 21, 2013Enhanced Alarms

We have just redesigned our Alarms & Reminders page to be easier to use, and we have added two new ways for you to receive alarms for tasks that are due soon.

Browser based alarms
When a task is due and the alarm goes off, a popup message will appear on your desktop or in your web browser. For this to work, your web browser must be open with Toodledo.com in one of the tabs, however it does not need to be the active tab. In the future, when supported by your OS, the browser will not need to be open.

Webhook
A webhook is a way for another website or service to get notified when an alarm goes off. To take advantage of this, it requires a little technical knowledge but it is a powerful way to extend Toodledo's alarm functionality in ways that we haven't imagined. This is also a way for 3rd party apps to receive remote alarms.
Oct 2, 2013Workhours Left in be Productive

We have made a little tool that some people may find useful for planning your time. This tool will show you the number of work hours left in the day, week, month and year so that you can see how much time you have left to be productive. It is customizable for your work schedule. Do you know how many hours you have left to work this year?

If you give time estimates to tasks, you can use this tool to help you schedule tasks effectively and not make the mistake of over-scheduling yourself. For example, there are only 166 work hours left in October (at the time of this post, assuming 8 hours worked per weekday and standard US holidays). Given this, it would be foolish and ultimately discouraging to schedule 200hrs of work for this month.

I have personally been using this tool for about a month to plan my weeks, and it has been a big help with prioritization.

This tool is available in the "Tools" section under the "More..." option. Here is the direct link:
http://www.toodledo.com/tools/workhours/index.php
Sep 30, 2013Undelete Tasks

We have added the ability to undelete tasks that were accidentally deleted, or that you deleted and then decide you want back. This feature is on the "Recently Deleted Tasks" page in your account settings.

Deleted tasks are kept for 1 month, to give you the opportunity to undelete them. After 1 month, deleted tasks are permanently removed from our records with no ability to recover them unless you maintain your own backups.
Sep 18, 2013Toodledo iOS update for iOS 7

Our iOS app has been updated for compatibility with iOS7. You can download version 3.2 now from the iTunes App Store.

This update also contains bug fixes for saved search and subtasks and refines some of the colors and UI of the app.

App Store

If Toodledo helps you be more productive, please consider giving us a rating/review in the iTunes App Store. Even if you have rated us before, you can rate us again with each new update that we release. It really does help us to have good ratings.
Sep 17, 2013New Section: Lists

Today we are excited to take the covers off our latest addition to Toodledo:

Lists

This is an entirely new section on Toodledo; you'll see the tab for it at the top of the page. This new section is a place for you to make customizable lists for specific purposes. Use it like a spreadsheet or use it to create packing lists, dieting logs, or an address books. Make a list to remember your favorite restaurants, or keep an inventory of your coin collection. For each list, you can customize the number and type of columns, with more than 20 different column types to choose from: text, number, date, rating, price, etc.

We've been using this internally and with beta testers for a few months, and we've had really positive feedback. To get started, please check out our tutorial video and sample lists available inside the Lists section.

Lists can be also attached to tasks (if you have a Gold Subscription), so you can link your packing list to your vacation task, or link a list of addresses to your task for sending out party invitations. This makes it convenient to quickly jump from a task to the List that it references.

We hope that this new tool will help you be more organized and productive.
Aug 29, 2013iOS App Version 3.1

Our iOS app has been updated with one of our top requested features.

Saved Search - A saved search is a custom list that shows just the tasks that match your search criteria. Once you create your saved searches on Toodledo.com they will sync to the app and be available for viewing. Saved searches cannot yet be created or edited in the app, this is scheduled for a future update. For more info about saved searches: http://www.toodledo.com/info/search.php

We have also added the following enhancements:
* Facebook Integration - Post any task to your Facebook page to share your accomplishments with your friends. Access this from the task details page. (iOS6 and up only)
* Duplicate and Delete Notes - You can now do these actions from the action button in top right corner of the note's details page.
* Added a tutorial video to the in-app documentation.
* Some UI refinements and minor bug fixes

App Store

Aug 2, 2013Outline: Hide checked items

We have released an update to the Outline section today. There is now a toolbar button for hiding and showing checked items.

We have also improved drag and drop and fixed a few other minor bugs.
Jul 29, 2013Silver, Gold, Platinum

You may have noticed last week that we changed the names of our subscription levels. What was once "Pro" is now "Silver" and "Pro Plus" is now "Gold". We did this to make it less confusing and because we wanted to add another tier, "Platinum" which we have done today. Platinum comes with increased file storage (50GB) and an uptime guarantee with credits if Toodledo ever experience significant downtime.

We have also expanded our Free Trial program to include the Gold subscription level for 14 days so people can test out our file attachment feature.

And don't forget about our referral program that you can use to get a free subscription by recommending Toodledo to your friends and coworkers.
Jul 12, 2013Miscellaneous Updates: Outline improvements, un-star completed,

This week we have implemented a variety of miscellaneous updates.

1) Outlines with links inside will now have clickable links.
2) Outline sorting/reordering of nodes is now greatly improved.
3) There is now an option in your account settings to automatically un-star a task when it is completed. If you use the star to mark urgent tasks, this can be a helpful way to have repeating tasks not be urgent after they are rescheduled.
4) The new file attachment feature now paginates the list of files, so if you have many files, it will no longer load painfully slowly.
5) We now offer a 14 day free trial of the Pro Plus subscription (previously it as 7 days of Pro).
6) We have updated our documentation and made a new video for our new file attachment feature
Jul 1, 2013File Attachments Upgrade (Dropbox, Outlines, Notes, ...)

Hot on the heels of our Outline Announcement from two weeks ago, today we area releasing a way to connect those outlines to your tasks. In this way, you can easily create an outline for a task and use it to organize the project or take hierarchical notes. We also took this opportunity to rewrite our File Attachment feature to add support for Dropbox, Google Drive, Gmail, and more. And we've also fixed some outstanding bugs. Here is a summary of what has changed for the attachment feature.

+ In addition to Files, you can now attach Outlines and Note Pages to any task.

+ When picking a file to upload to Toodledo, you can now choose to select a file directly from your Dropbox, Facebook, Flickr, Google Drive, Gmail or FTP account.

+ If you have a webcam, you can record and attach a picture or video to any task. This is a great way to record an idea or snapshot of something you need to remember.

+ You can now have multiple files with the same name. Uploading a file with the same name as an existing file will no longer replace it.

+ To replace a file, there is now a new button to accomplish this. Just upload the replacement file and it will replace the old file across all your tasks, and it will replace it for collaborators that are sharing those tasks too.

+ Non-english characters in file names will work correctly now.

+ The maximum file size has been increased to 25MB.

To access these new feature, please click the attachment icon (available to Pro Plus Subscribers) and then select which Outline, Note or File you want to attach.

We use a service called "Ink FilePicker" to help with some of this new file attachment functionality. It is a great service which allows us to easily integrate with many different 3rd party services. Some functionality (ie. webcam) may be dependent on your computer's and browser's capabilities.
Jun 28, 2013Toodledo Mac Menu Bar App

Toodledo now has a Mac application that will provide quick access to your to-do list from your Mac's menu bar.

http://www.toodledo.com/tools/mac_menubar.php

If you have a Mac, you can now quickly add a task or review your to-do list without firing up your web browser. It works offline too, so you can manage your tasks without an internet connection and it will sync up when you reconnect.
Jun 25, 2013iOS App Version 3.0.8

Our iOS app has been updated to version 3.0.8. It includes:

* Improved performance of loading lists by around 35%
* Fixes crash when tapping the "show" button on iOS 5.1 with context field enabled
* Adjustments to background colors to make the app feel brighter
* Notifications will now be removed one at a time as you view them in the Notification Center.
* Fixed bug where app wouldn't sync when passcode was enabled with a delay
* Fixed bug with editing the "repeat" field for non-english languages
